    when i hit “Connect Google” nothing happends. Its because (i think) in google_review_setup.php you use your own api key AIzaSyAQ1j_iD1npoqTRuhrIx-ADeVZjQddUqKs but the response from the URL https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/place/details/json?placeid=%5BPLACEID%5D&key=AIzaSyAQ1j_iD1npoqTRuhrIx-ADeVZjQddUqKs&language=%5BLANGUAGE%5D says
    error_message “You have exceeded your daily request quota for this API. If you did not set a custom daily request quota, verify your project has an active billing account: http://g.co/dev/maps-no-account
    html_attributions []
    status “OVER_QUERY_LIMIT”

    It would be great if we can use our own API-Key with referrer restriction

    I installed the plugin and followed the tutorial. But, when I copy and paste the shortcode the review module does not show. I tried on both pages and posts, new and old. Please, can you help?

    Thank you, Vicky

    Hello – I am able to get the reviews to show in a post by using the shortcode but want to obtain the raw JSON for all my aggregated reviews so I can post in the header. Is there a way to grab this code? I looked in documentation and did not find where I could grab the code, and it’s only HTML when I try to insert into a post.

    1. Sonali

      Hi David,

      In reviews, we already provide JSON markup so no need to add markup in the header and if you have issue/problem then contact our technical team – https://ampforwp.com/support/ they will help you as soon as possible.
